Globally, one in three women has experienced some form of physical and sexual violence in their lifetimes (UN Women). Emerging data indicates that since the COVID-19 outbreak, violence against women and girls, particularly domestic violence, has intensified. The combination of economic shocks brought on by the pandemic, and restrictions on movement, have increased the vulnerability of women and girls vulnerable to various forms of violence. In the final segment of this webinar series, experts and practitioners examine rising gender-based violence through the lens of space – public, private and digital, and share insights on ‘what works’ to address inequitable power structures and social norms.
